With Rory MacDonald pulling out of the UFC 152 bout with B.J. Penn after sustaining a very bad cut in training, the question is if the UFC will move the bout to either 153 (as Penn wants) or 154 (as MacDonald wants), or if they'll just give Penn a new opponent.

Siyar Bahadurzada crushed Paulo Thiago in 42 seconds in his UFC debut and now he'd like to be the man who gets to fight B.J.:

(1/2) The only reason I wanna fight @bjpenndotcom is to test my will and warrior spirit vs his. I'm not fighting for money! @UFC @danawhite

(2/2) I'm willing to donate my fight purse to a charity to prove that it's not for financial reasons & will take VADA tests! @UFC @danawhite

Interesting to say the least. His fight purse would be made up in the FOTN bonus anyhow lol, this would be a sick fight.

this would be a great fight. i think rory would have destroyed BJ anyway. i like siyar, and a fight with BJ would show if he can still live up to the hype.

Canada universally hates BJ Penn.

I think you've just found the spin in his statement.

He'd donate his fight purse to charity, but if he won or even put on a good fight, Dana would compensate him in bonuses.

This is a great PR move though.

No.

Multiple posts have already established the fact that Canadians do not like BJ Penn.

Therefore, please retract your statement or renounce your Canadian citizenship.

Your choice.

He's not one of my favourites but I've rooted for him on several occasions. I've got nothing against B.J. at all tbh. I think he's very talented and has shown signs of greatness during pivotal moments in his career. I've made it well known I like him much more at Lightweight though.

Oh, and Bisping is much, much worse than Penn.

It is in great spirit and it is a noble gesture by Siyar but honestly I don't think BJ will accept the challenge. It would be a great fight though but I would hate to see BJ lose.

Who...? Get real this guy is not worthy of a fight with bj. even if he has a chance no one even knows this guy 1 fast ko doest mean you can just call out someone like bj and get the fight. If he wants a higher profile fight just say so but calling out guys is a bit premature for a guy with 1 UFC fight.
